    Default Churchill Knight or Giant umbrellas - any advice?

    Has anyone got any experience with the umbrella schemes of either Churchill Knight or Giant? I need to choose between the two and while the former is a LOT cheaper with their current offer, I'm worried that it's for a reason!

    I've added links. But just to be clear, I'm interested in hearing from their current or ex-customers, rather than just opinions on the information on their web pages...

    Hi Whumpie,

    Just to confirm, there’s no particular reason for the offer – it’s just a special rate we offer for those who come to Churchill Knight Umbrella.

    A quick update: it looks like Giant have already sent up the red flags: their illustration for their GBC scheme was totally incorrect, assuming a 20% PAYE rate on an income of well into six figures. That's put them out of the running...

    Been with Churchill Knight accountants for my Ltd company accounting since 2009 and they have been nothing but good for me. No complaints.
